Happy Birthday Bev and Cook-out Plans

Rantoul, IL.

54 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Sunny. Highs in the lower 80s. Light north winds.

Jim spent much of the day yesterday visiting with Denny and Dave. Linda worked on her Family Tree program and in the afternoon, baked a cake.

You see, yesterday was Bev's birthday and being that there were already plans to get together with Denny and Bev for pizza, Linda decided to bake a small birthday cake for Bev. : ) 

So, about 5:00, Linda called Monical's Pizza to have a pizza delivered and then a little later Jim and Linda headed over there.

Jim and Linda both said that the pizza was good and everyone seemed to enjoy the cake. I thought that I might hear them singing "Happy Birthday" to Bev, but I understand that she really didn't want them to do that. ; )

While they were eating pizza and birthday cake, quite a rain storm came through the area. It rained really hard for  awhile and we even had some thunder!  Jim was concerned because he had left my windows open, but it was OK as the rain was pretty much straight down, and my window awnings did their job and kept the rain out.

Today, Dorthy and Gordy are coming for awhile. They'll be driving down here in their car and will be heading back home this evening. Since they're coming down today, there's going to be "cook-out" where everyone will bring a dish to share and they'll cook hot dogs and brats over a camp fire.

It should be fun! ; )

Did you know that on this date in1959 - Hawaii became the 50th state?
